Who would have ever thought 2020 would have presented the challenges that it has so far? COVID 19 has forced the VA and most others to rethink how they do business. From being totally closed in most cases to doing virtual visits when possible, the VA is just now beginning to schedule exams associated with claims. I know it is frustrating when you are trying to get a claim resolved and you hear nothing for months on end. It will take the VA a while to get caught up but to their credit, they are working outside the box to get claims adjudicated as fast as possible.

None of the Veterans organizations having been conducting monthly meetings this year. I will post on our Facebook page once they resume. We have just restarted our Band of Brothers monthly meetings and would love to have you attend. We meet on the 1st Tuesday of the month at Highland Drive Freewill Baptist Church at 7:30 pm. All Veterans are welcome for a cup of coffee and fellowship with other Vets.

Our office is now open to walk ins and appointments with a few restrictions. Masks are mandatory to be seen. Only one person or family is allowed in our lobby at a time. Please wait outside in the hallway until the lobby is clear as we are operating at 50% capacity until further notice. We thank you for your patience during this time and look forward to serving you any way we can.

It takes special talent to work this hard.
